Its no surprise that I’m obsessed with nail art!!! I don’t even remember the last time I just did one shade on all 10 fingers haha!!! Yet doing nail art can become very time consuming so Ive created some easy and quick autumn nails that anyone can recreate.
For this cute little fall mani I painted my nails with 2 coats of OPI My Vampire Is Buff, waited for them to dry and applied these super cute water decals from Bornprettystore.com and locked it in with my all time favorite top coat: Seche Vite. These are the best decals I’ve ever used, they were so easy to apply and so thin which made them sit so beautifully on the nail. They have so many super cute designs and styles (not to mention a bunch of other nail and beauty related goodies). The ones I used you can find right here

Heres anoher mani I’ve recently created which involved a little ombre, glitter and negative space. To create the ombre I did 2 coats of OPI Dont Bossa Nova Me Around and let it dry. Then with the desired shade or glitter I used a sponge to stipple the color on starting from the tip of nail working towards the cuticle. Let dry and pack on more color to the tip until you have your ombre.
To create the negative space, I took some thin nail tape and lined it on my nails. I then painted 2 coats of OPI Suzi Skies In The Pyrenees and waited until it was completely dry to pull off the tape, and voila, nagative space nails!!
What was your favorite mani? I loved the decals because they are so fricking adorable but I also love the ombre for a more sophisticated look.
So to no surprise I’ve been super MIA… after getting back from holiday I started my full time job with Make Up For Ever, was plagued with a nasty flu and I’m now finally recovering from a mean old case of sinus infection, hence the lack of posts. I really need to come up with a posting plan so I don’t ever let my blog be on the back burner. So I’d thought I’d come back with some fun nail art that I’ve created over the past month or so.
This is just some inspiration for all you lovely folks but if you’d like a tutorial or a run down then definitely leave a comment and ill try my hardest to give a step by step.

So I’m back in Copenhagen after a lovely holiday in Cali visiting the parents and I finally had the chance to try out the new GelLack Neon Collection by Depend Cosmetic. Each polish costs 79 dkk (around 11 Euros) and can be purchased here on Matas.com
I used Neon Greenand Neon Coral on my accent nail, and added a super cute anchor charm from Hex Nail Jewelry (can be purchased here).
I absolutely love the shades in the Neon Collection, so bright, fun, and totally summer appropriate. You get full glossy opacity in three coats (totally normal for neon shades) and of course it lasts for weeks. To find out exactly how to apply GelLack I have a full tutorial and review here.
And since I’m talking about Depend Cosmetic; they are throwing a super lavish VIP Party and Event for all you lovely ladies (and gents) out there. It will include drinks, eyelash applications (done by yours truly), an awesome goodie bag full of presents and some good old fashion fun. The event is on Friday July 4th (at 8pm) and is located at Miami Cocktail Bar in Copenhagen. All you have to do to attend is email your name to email@example.com (oh and dont forget to invite your friends!!) I posted the invite below but you can also view it on their Facebook page here.
